E-mail this message to a friend:
 PIE Transformer automatically adds diacritics to English words on a 
Web page to indicate their pronunciations. This has three uses:

1. For English-as-a-second-language (ESL) people to learn correct 
English word pronunciations.

2. For native English-speaking children to learn how to read. (See 'No

3. Recreational use. Show off a sentence in the PIE (Phonetically 
Intuitive English) form to your online friends or use it in your commercial
